ACCESS TO EDUCATION: Kuano Presby JHS In Need of Proper Infrastructure

Kuano Presbyterian Junior High School in the Ayensuano District of the Eastern Region is in dire need of infrastructure.

The school has no classroom block hence, an old chapel of the Presbyterian Church is serving as a makeshift for students in that enclave of the country.

This is what students of Kuano Presbyterian Junior High School in the Eastern region have to contend with as their peers in the city are enjoying better educational conditions.

This is the classroom used by form one students and that for form and form three students.

Teaching and learning hours come to abrupt end anytime Church activities are supposed to take place.

The plight of the school has been compounded by inadequate desks, teaching and learning materials and lack of computers for ICT lessons.

The infrastructure challenge in the school does not only affect the students, but the Kindergarten with population of 160 children who are expected to have good education foundation.

To add salt to injury the pupils had to study under a pavilion with inadequate teaching and learning materials as well as chairs.

Kuano Presbyterian School also serves three surrounding communities.

The Headmaster of the School, Odei Asare tells GHOne News the chronic challenges of the school is having negative impact on deliver of quality education despite extra efforts of teachers.

The Chief of Kuano, Barfuor Kofi Asante II, expressed worry that the community has been neglected by government depriving the it basic social amenities such as befitting School infrastructure and potable drinking water.

‘We don’t access to potable drinking water. We have only one borehole. We are appealing to the government to construct more for us’, the Chief lamented.
